The advantages of a High Grade server
Servers for critical uses
The High Grade server range is flexible, and can be adapted to suit specific and critical workloads. These platforms have a very different design — they offer more computing power for hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI), more storage for software-defined storage (SDS), and high-capacity disks for data storage and archiving. Select the server that best suits your needs, then deploy your project.
An innovative high-speed network
Communication between your machines is a structural element. It is important to keep this in mind when you design your private cloud, or launch your cluster. Once you have enabled the OVHcloud Link Aggregation (OLA) feature, you get an internal, secure network with nearly 50Gbit/s* for transferring data between your servers.
*The OVHcloud Link Aggregation feature must be enabled and configured to use all four network links.
Availability, reliability and security
To guarantee you optimal uptime, our platforms include a redundant physical network (four interfaces for redundancy), a dual power supply, and hot-swap disks. The different types of SSD drives (SAS, SATA and NVMe) can be replaced without requiring a server reboot. For example, if you want to increase your storage capacity, the operation will not result in any downtime for your services.
IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server has a public IPv4 address and an IPv6 address range. As an option, you can rent additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
Public bandwidth - 1Gbit/s - guaranteed and unlimited
Your server has a default minimum bandwidth. Ingress and egress traffic is unlimited and free (with the exception of our datacentres located in the Asia-Pacific region). You also have the option of increasing the volume of your bandwidth.
Service Level Agreement - 99.99%
All of the servers in the range have a 99.99% SLA, ensuring the best availability for your business applications.
vRack private network - 10Gbit/s - guaranteed and unlimited
Your server is delivered with our private physical network — the vRack. This means you can create your own cluster, or include your server in an existing infrastructure. It is fully isolated from the internet, and delivered at no extra cost.
OVHcloud Link Aggregation
The OVHcloud Link Aggregation feature maximises the availability of your dedicated servers. You can enable it via the OVHcloud Control Panel to group your network links (public and private). This ensures service continuity, and a very high-bandwidth private network for your most critical applications and distributed systems.
Dual power supply (2xPSU)
Power supply is one of the key components of guaranteeing an infrastructure’s availability. Depending on how critical your project is, a dual power supply is an important aspect of avoiding any downtime. Service interruptions can prove costly in terms of both business and brand image.
Hot swap disks
The hot swap feature can be used to change or add disks without service interruptions. This guarantees constant uptime for your services.

What is a High Grade server used for?
High Grade servers are adapted to meet new challenges surrounding converged infrastructures and storage. They meet the requirements of critical workloads and highly resilient infrastructures.
How do I choose where my data is stored?
You can deploy your data in our certified datacentres across the globe. Host your data as closely as possible to your users, and your company’s regulatory requirements.
Are High Grade servers certified?
Your dedicated servers are ISO 27001 certified, which certifies that strict data security processes are implemented.
What is the difference between a high-performance server and a standard server?
Each project is unique — not all of them require large amounts of resources, or specific features. While a standard server is usually enough to launch a website or application, other projects will require a high-performance server with a higher quality of service. Our premium servers are designed for all high-value projects that require increased performance, and resources that can meet growing needs. They are designed with the best components available for datacentres. They can also be equipped with very high volumes of RAM, several processors, and a multitude of different disks.
What is a premium server used for?
A premium server, also called a high-end server, is designed for intensive resource usage, with high-volume workloads that require reliable, high-performance hardware. These uses include big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence in general, and resource-intensive applications.
